Day Thirty Seven Later

Sent this and the last post by loitering in the pitch black behind the hostel leaching free wifi off a neighbouring house listening to Ace of Spades, Motorhead. The mossies have gone up my trouser legs and there is a distinct rustling sound to my right. Off to go squidding now (well watch it anyway)…

Day Thirty Seven

Today my desk is a restaurant table in Monkey Mia opposite a blue sea that is almost glass watching dolphins play in front of me with the occasional tail flip. It’s eye smartingly hot again as there is no breeze to speak of and I’m wearing the least amount of clothes that could cause offense already. Went out on a cat this morning to spot sealife. We weren’t very successful apart from a couple of turtles the boat nearly ran over, some sea snakes and a pod of juvey male dolphins but it was so good to be back out on the water. Actually sailing completely scares me witless, but the cat didn’t do any tipping, so I didn’t have to sit on the rim on the boat trying to balance it back from an impossibly steep angle so I wasn’t almost dunked so I actually felt quite happy and enjoyed the whole thing. Until the skipper’s mate said that cats do tip (but luckily there was no chance of it happening that trip).

I really need to go for a wee but the sheer effort involved is really putting me off.

Day Thirty Six

A strange man walked into my hostel appartment yesterday as I was laid out on the sofa reading and asked me if I wanted to have a look at the python in his pouch. Luckily it turned out to be a euphemism for an abandoned joey that the lady running the hostel was rehabilitating. He and the joey then left once I’d promised to give someone a message about some tiger balm and I carried on with my book.

Today my desk is the end of the jetty in Denham with the sun setting to my back watching my friends fish. So far they’ve not caught anything to eat for dinner but last night they had a feast of trevally and whiting. Three emus have just wandered passed.
